Science Shows Trumps First 100 Days = DISASTER


Celebrate 100 Days?

This next week will mark Trump’s hundredth day in office and he has little to celebrate. His hundredth day will pass without a single substantial legislative achievement.

But you, the progressives, have much to be proud of and we believe you should celebrate. In just one hundred days:

You defeated an immoral health care bill.

You marched with millions in every community in the nation.

You confronted your representatives at town halls and demanded your voice be heard.

You resisted the callous injustice of mass deportation.

We have built a powerful and united movement. We claimed the mighty legacy of our great movements for justice. Progressives haven’t gone away. The dream has not died.

Be proud. Stand a little taller. Celebrate what we have done. Look forward to what we will soon achieve.

In the months to come, People’s Action is preparing dozens of strong progressive candidates to challenge Republicans at all levels of government. More importantly, we are investing in local organizations that will reshape the map and reject the false divisions of red and blue.

That’s why we need your help. Your donation means local power, local campaigns and real infrastructure. It means taking back statehouses and Congress.

Celebrate a hundred days with a donation of whatever you are able to afford.

Thank you for all that you do.

    Dear Kevin,

    While a lot has changed since the last Earth Day, one thing hasn’t: Earthjustice’s commitment to protect our public lands, our wildlife, and our communities. Last year at this time we were celebrating the historic moment where the United States came together with 150 countries and committed to lowering planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, to help fend off the most devastating impacts of climate change.

    Today, we have a President who is threatening to remove the United States from the historic Paris agreement and an EPA administrator who actively denies the science of climate change.

    No one voted for dirty water, smog or pollution. At Earthjustice we have the top environmental lawyers in the country who are continuing to do what they do best, use the power of the law for good. We know that for so many of the challenges we’re facing, the courts are the last line of defense. Here are some of the ways we’re in court working to protect you and your family:

    When the Trump administration opened up our public lands to the coal industry, we were there, ready to fight back. We filed a lawsuit challenging Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s decision to lift this coal leasing moratorium because this giveaway to fossil fuel executives will poison our air, water and threatens our future.

    Despite the Environmental Protection Agency’s own findings that chlorpyrifos is unsafe in food, drinking water, and pesticide drift, the EPA refused to ban the use of this pesticide. Earthjustice attorneys are fighting back and asking the court to protect children by ordering the EPA to act now.

    The Clean Power Plan is a vital, common-sense safeguard. It sets the first-ever federal limits on carbon pollution from existing fossil-fuel-fired electric power plants. President Trump has taken aim at the CPP urging the EPA to consider suspending, revising, or rescinding it. We’re working tirelessly to defend it.

    What gives my colleagues and me hope as we take on these cases, is knowing that we have people like you fighting alongside us. From calling your representatives, to showing up for marches around the country, to chipping in even $5 to help us take on these emergency legal battles—you are helping us take on the threats ahead.

    Thank you for your support,

    Trip Van Noppen
    President
